GP Thunder 7500k - My first shot of them in daylight (CLOSEUP) and a brief review



Some pros and cons:

PROS
-They look so much better than the nasty stock yellows
-Easy install but would be easier if you have hands the size of a 5 year old

CONS
-Could be a little brighter
-When the Xenons are on, the GP Thunders dim and go to a yellowish tint

Pretty much my conclusion. I plan on getting RD LED or the MTEC LED unless something better comes out before I get home to the US.

got this as well. and for me it's perfect for it's price range. but i will rate this pure white with a hint of yellow . instead of blue , at dawn or nite time u might see it as white wif a little bit of bluish. but in day time it's white wif a hit of yellow.
so i wonder how would GPT 8500k look like, cuz i want a more white and bluish set up.
anyone kno the differece between these 2 ?

Biggest problem with the 7500's is that they dim when the headlights are on, and you really get that yellow ting (even the V2's, which I've tried, and currently have on my car, while I wait for my replacement 8500's...I've had 2 bulbs burn out on me so far).

8500's dim as well, but not nearly as badly, and they still show a bluish white.

Dimming is not kosher. This is why I went with Lux H8. No complaints here.

Don't do it, you'll be severely disappointed by both considering the money you'll have to shell out compared to the GPT's. Unless you want to pay $220 for the LUX H8's, stay with the GPT's...take it from someone who has already been down this road...
